At Blanchard & Thomas, we work hard to make sure you never feel that way, no matter how complex your legal matter.

Whether you are dealing with an emotional family law or divorce case, a complex criminal charge, a painful personal injury, or are ready to draft a detailed will and trust, our firm has the resources to fight for you. As a smaller firm, we are able to devote high levels of personal attention to your case while still maintaining the effectiveness of a larger firm.

Our firm adheres to traditional values and personal service in order to give our clients the level of representation they deserve. Throughout case proceedings, you can count on us to provide you with regular, straightforward communication about the options that are available to you.

We respond to any calls or emails within 24 hours, if not sooner. Our goal is to help you make informed decisions about matters that have the ability to impact the rest of your life. We are here to see your case through from start to finish. Our divorce and criminal justice attorneys help clients from our conveniently located offices across Texas.

The Blanchard & Thomas "Clients' Bill of Rights"

We Want To Earn The Right To Be Your Attorneys From Now On,
Not Just For The Duration Of Your Current Legal Issue.

We Aim to Win

We play to win. While we cannot guarantee outcomes in any case, we always do our best to see that our clients come out on top. We want our clients to know without question that their success matters to us personally.

Strategic Planning

We play hard, we play fast, and we stick to the game plan. We work with every client to develop a strategy most likely to bring about their success. We work hard to ensure the strategy gives our client every advantage possible and their very best chance at success. We then implement that strategy as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Honesty and Integrity

We build our relationships upon a foundation of total honesty. Absolute honesty allows the client and the attorney to develop trust that will be absolutely critical to success in and out of the courtroom.

Commitment To Communication

We make a commitment to communication. We begin and end many of our days communicating with clients. Our clients can count on us to return phone calls and/or e-mails within 24 to 48 hours except in emergencies or during announced absences from the office. We want our clients to know what we know and vice-versa. We want to ensure they can make informed decisions from start to finish.

Client Attorney Relationship

While the attorney client relationship may not always result in friendship, we believe it should always result in mutual respect. We zealously advocate on our clients’ behalf whether we agree with their choices or not. We do not judge our client’s choices; we simply attempt to help them learn from them, live with them, and overcome them.

Our Promise

We serve at the clients’ pleasure. If for any reason whatsoever the client decides he/she is better off with a different attorney or law firm, we will respectfully and professionally do whatever we can to get the new attorney or law firm up to speed and ready to handle the case. We vow to never object to a client’s request to seek alternative counsel, and we promise to return 100% of any unearned advance payments.
